Customer case

Lincoln Park, Boston, USA

The densely populated city of Somerville, MA has limited space for outdoor activities. So, a creative solution was needed to develop an area where residents of all age groups could socialize and become active.

Lincoln Park, the largest city-owned park in Sommerville, began its development with KOMPAN and the local residents to design a playground that incorporated the ability to engage with other community residents, adventurous play, and the ability for the playground to integrate with the surrounding natural environment.

Customer case

Active City Center in Grindsted, Denmark

The municipality of Billund, Denmark wanted to bring new life to the city center. The ambition was to increase activity and extend people's stay in the city center in hopes of increasing visits to local shops and establishments - thereby giving a boost to the local economy. The final product was a custom space with varied equipment, including a unique play tower for children to climb up & a specialized rope bridge for playgrounds for them to traverse across.

Customer case

Ramsden Park, Toronto, Canada

The landscape architect behind the new playground in Ramsden Park, Toronto, had the vision to create something new and exciting, but through including something old. By old, she meant incorporating both the city’s heritage and some time-tested favorites from the existing KOMPAN playground. The new playground uses yellow colors and themes from Toronto’s history of brick and has maintained several of the timeless play items from the old playground, like the iconic Crazy Hen. After giving years of pleasure in its former location, the first of the revolutionary springers is still in great shape and has become part of the new playground.
